Wrongful Death

Wrongful Death Lawyers in Mobile, AL

Compassionate Advocacy for Families in Alabama and Beyond

When someone dies due to the negligence or wrongful conduct of another person, the victim is not only robbed of his or her life: Their family is also forever robbed of a cherished loved one. This grief becomes even more difficult to bear when there is a substantial loss of income and the family’s finances are put at risk.

While nothing can ever truly compensate for this kind of tragedy, filing a wrongful death claim can lighten some of the financial burden caused by a loved one’s death – and ensure that the responsible party is unable to hurt other families through the same negligence. At Cunningham Bounds, our compassionate Mobile wrongful death attorneys have handled hundreds of cases and are committed to achieving the best possible outcome every time.

Since 1958, our firm has recovered billions of dollars in verdicts and settlements on behalf of Alabama residents. We devote extensive resources to each case, and as injury attorneys who truly care about our clients, we want to help you find peace of mind in the wake of a terrible loss.

Am I Eligible for a Wrongful Death Claim?

In personal injury law, wrongful death is one of the types of “damages” available to victims after a serious accident. However, because the victim is deceased, a wrongful death lawsuit can only be brought by specific family members and loved ones who were affected by the victim’s death.

In Alabama, wrongful death claims can be made by any of the following:

  • Surviving spouses
  • Children
  • Parents
  • Grandparents
  • Siblings

As with any other personal injury claim, you will need to show that another individual or organization directly caused serious injuries through negligence. A person or group of people can be considered “negligent” when they violate the standard “duty of care” that was owed to the victim in a given situation. For example, a driver who decides to drink alcohol before getting behind the wheel will almost always be considered negligent in a car accident, as drunk driving is one of the leading causes of car crash fatalities across the country.

Additionally, you can pursue a wrongful death claim when your loved one was the victim of an intentional wrongful action or a crime, such as a physical assault. Although prosecutors may decide to file criminal charges against the defendant in these instances, you are still entitled to bring a lawsuit through the civil justice system and hold them accountable there.

To establish a wrongful death claim, you will need to demonstrate the following:

  • That the defendant (or the party responsible for your loved one’s death) acted in a negligent or wrongful manner;
  • That this negligence or wrongful action directly caused your loved one’s accident; and
  • That you and any relevant family members have suffered financial and emotional losses as a direct result of your loved one’s death.
